Review of the Best Sex Toys for Couples

Let’s have a look at some of the best couples toys on the market and what they are good for.

Best Couple’s Vibrators

1. Lovehoney Bionic Bullet 5 Function Vibrating Rabbit Cock Ring

A vibrating cock ring is a wearable couple’s vibrator that is placed on the shaft of the penis, leaving your hands free to roam where you like them.

This one, in particular, is a cheap but effective way to add some extra stimulation to your partnered sex.

This cock ring has two rings, one that goes around the shaft of the penis making the erection harder, and one that goes around the scrotum to make the male last longer.

There are also vibrating ears to stimulate the other partner while you play so no one misses out on the fun! The removable bullet vibe has 2 vibration speeds and 3 different patterns to explore.

play

Pros

  • You get all the benefits of a cock ring plus vibration too!
  • The ring is made of super stretchy silicone so it will be firm but still comfortable for the wearer.
  • It is a hands-free, wearable couples vibes so you can use your hands for stimulation elsewhere.

Cons

  • It is a battery operated and is not waterproof. Remove the bullet when you clean it.
  • The clitoral ears are a little flimsy and require positions without too much movement to really stimulate properly. Girl on top is a goody!

Bottom Line

This is a great non-expensive way to add a couples vibrator into your play, plus you get all the benefits of a cock ring too.

2. Lovehoney Deluxe Rechargeable Mini Massage Wand Vibrator

If you want a couple’s vibrator that is a bit more versatile, then this mini wand massager might be just the thing.

Mini wand massagers make great couples toys as they are small enough to be used during foreplay or sex without getting in the way or requiring any awkward sex positions.

Even though this is a mini style, it still has 10 speeds and 7 different patterns and its pretty powerful.

It is also USB rechargeable so you never need to worry about running out of batteries. The head of the toy is made from soft silicone and the neck is super flexible so you can get it exactly where you like it.

While wands are primarily used to stimulate the clitoris, they were actually designed as an all-over muscle massager and they are perfect for use on your back or shoulders too.

play

Pros

  • It is actually fairly quiet too, especially for it's power.
  • It is very powerful and just as strong as longer wand massagers.
  • USB rechargeable means you can charge it anywhere you have a charging point and its great to take away on vacation.

Cons

  • It doesn’t come with a storage bag which is a bit of a bummer.
  • The ridged edges making cleaning properly difficult so just take care to really get into those grooves.

Bottom Line

This is a pretty hard wand vibe to fault. It is versatile, powerful and is bound to satisfy and relax any couple.

2. Lovehoney Oh! Feather Tickler

In my mind, feather ticklers are one of the most underrated adult toys out there.

These simple little things offer a lot of stimulation and are a great addition to get your aroused get your nerve endings all over the body tingling in anticipation.

This tickler is made from super soft marabou feathers and it can be used anywhere on the body to heighten sensitivity.

The feeling is very light so it is a great toy to use alongside something else like a vibrator to mix up the two sensations.

  • This toy is super affordable.
  • This tickler can be used by anyone from beginner to advanced.
  • It’s extremely discreet and can be easily hidden away or left on display without it being an obvious sex toy.

Just because you are apart, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still play together.

The We-Vibe Sync is a couple’s vibe that can be used together during sex, or apart as a solo female toy.

If you are using it apart, the woman can wear the toy alone while her partner controls the speed and pattern of vibration using the app.

How to Care for Your New Toy

Now that you know a bit about what is available it's important to know how to care for your toy properly so that it lasts.

It’s really important to know what your toy is made is so that you can match it with the right lubricant.

Silicone toys, for example, can’t be used with silicone lubricant. If you are not sure, then stick to a water-based lube as this is suitable for use with all sex toy materials.

The other thing to consider is cleaning your toy. Your toys need to be cleaned before and after each use for them to be body safe.

Grab a toy cleaner like this one from Lovehoney and use it with warm water to get rid of any dust or bacteria. And always allow your toy to dry fully before you store it.

Conclusion

Using sex toys with a partner is a great way to really ignite that spark and get you super excited about each other.

There is a toy to suit every body part and every fetish, it just takes a bit of searching to find out what you are both into.

Always make sure you get consent before you introduce a toy too and respect your partner's decision if they aren’t into it. If you communicate openly, you should be able to find something to play with that you both love.
